I think there should be a set of criteria for professional reviewers that is actually followed today. Far too often, the proverbial “grapevine,” speaks of these practices. For example, company “X” provided professional reviewer “A” with heaps of perks, freebies and goodies, while the competition, company “Y,” couldn’t afford to lavishly spoil the reviewer.
Authors are watching a new era emerge in writing and, despite the controversy, it’s refreshing to see it happen. “Self-published” used to be a term of failure. It implied laziness, incompetence and even impatience.
I’ve read countless books on editing during my years writing. I’ve enjoyed guides on grammar, structure, technique and style. Yet, I think the most beneficial steps a writer can take are much simpler and easier to understand.
